UPDATE: In order to make room for Reagor on the 53-man roster, the Vikings made another surprising move by waiving WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette.
For the last two years, Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver Jalen Reagor has been known as “the guy that was drafted before Justin Jefferson.” Now, he gets to be Jefferson’s teammate.
Trade: Eagles are sending WR Jalen Reagor to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a 2023 7th-round pick and a 2024 conditional 4th-round pick that would deescalate to a 5th-round pick if certain statistical marks are not met, sources tell ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 31, 2022
Adam Schefter is reporting that the Minnesota Vikings are acquiring Reagor from the Eagles for a seventh-round pick in 2023 and a conditional fourth-round pick in 2024 that would deescalate to a fifth-rounder if certain marks are not met.
Reagor was selected by the Eagles with the 21st overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, one selection before the Vikings took Jefferson. In his two years with the Eagles, he has caught 64 passes for 695 yards and three scores.
It appears that Reagor will slot in as the #5 or #6 wide receiver for the Vikings. Perhaps just as importantly, Reagor has some experience returning punts, doing so 31 times last year for the Eagles. He also had a 73-yard punt return as a rookie in 2020.
Once again, the Minnesota Vikings have acquired WR Jalen Reagor in a trade from the Philadelphia Eagles. They will have to make a corresponding roster move to put him on the 53-man roster.
